    After the hydrate 80 rust converter had well and truly dried I applied a couple of coats of zinc heavy anti rust primer. I did actually but the Bilt Hamber Electrolux one quite a long time ago but when I came to spray it it didn't work - DOH! Hopefully this generic one is just as good.

    After 2nd coat it started to give decent coverage.

    This is the logic behind it - notice that it says zinc primer "dramatically increases" the life so there you go.

    Finally my Bilt Hamber order arrived that consisted of some Deox C rust remover, Epoxy Mastic 2 part paint, the hardener and thinner.

    Also in the post is one of my orders from Superperformance. Trying to replace all my hardware with new where available and price is reasonable - eg. not prepared to pay over 26 for one small washer!!!!!

    Also in the post (what a fun day) was some more POR15 metal prep from Frost restoration.

    Now I normally used Por15 paint for painting over treated rusty areas but it is a bit of a nightmare to use. Once the can is open unless you use it all up in one go you're more than likely to find that come back a few months later and the can has sealed itself shut or the contents have gone rock hard. So this in mind I decided to try the Bilt Hamber equivalent which has teh added advantage of being a 2 part epoxy with an alleged good shelf life. Obviously early days yet but opening the tin a couple of days later after 1st use was no problem so I think I prefer it. Nice touch on the tin it has a locking seal to keep it tight shut.

    The ratio of paint to hardener is 4 to 1 and you get a small cup to mix it. TBH although it looks small it covers quite an area so big enough. Don't know whether it was due to the cold but next day the paint was still not quite hard - sort of dry but if you were to try and dent it with your fingernail it would so for the 2nd coat I added a little bit more hardener which did the trick.
